We are holding onto the last few weeks of the summer, enjoying the sun and spending as much time outdoors as we can by exploring our city. We love going to Kits beach, going for walks and bike rides around Stanley Park on the Seawall, visiting Science World, Granville Island, and our favourite playgrounds.
Going out to play means protecting our skin from the sun before we leave the house. We always apply sunscreen before we go anywhere, in the morning, and reapply mid-day if we are outdoors most of the day. Thankfully, the boys are used to me applying sunscreen, and we turn it into a fun game. I have explained the effects of sun exposure to them and the importance of protecting our skin from UV rays, so they understand why we do it.
We have been using the New AVEENO® BABY Sunscreen SPF 50 and new & improved AVEENO® ACTIVE NATURALS® Sensitive Skin SPF 50 mineral sunscreens, and I love that they are formulated with naturally sourced 100% zinc oxide and ACTIVE NATURALS® Oats. They are both hypoallergenic and a great option for sensitive and delicate skin.
The AVEENO® Baby and ACTIVE NATURALS® sunscreens are also both lightweight and don’t leave our skin greasy at all. They are water resistant (80 minutes), so perfect for those beach/water park visits and they are of course, free of all parabens, phthalates, dyes, and fragrances.
